Race Report: Raleigh SCX1 - Callendar Park
The Raleigh Scottish Cyclocross Series kicked off under the usual azure blue skies of Falkirk at the Callendar Park Amphitheatre of ’cross - surely Scotland’s best and most “cross” course. A mixture of fast descents, off camber corners, steep stairs and slidey zig zags makes this a fast and exciting course with plenty of technical challenge. Conditions looked dry but the course was slippier than it looked and most riders dropped their tyre pressures after practice.
Dig In Cross Report: SCX3 - Strathclyde Park
The latest Dig In Cross Report is now online and it's a belter. No art-school barriers, no cancelled racing, just a classic mudfest at Strathclyde Park raced in brutal conditions. Cameras were very probably harmed in the making of this, the sixth crowd-sourced roundup of Scottish CX action narrated and edited by David Hamill.
Race Report: Plean CX
By Owen Phillipson. This year cyclocross returned to Plean Country Park for the first time since 2011, when Stirling Bike Club ran a round of the Scottish Cyclocross Association series.
The course had changed quite a bit from previous editions of the race, with more tarmac and hard-packed paths interspersed with an offroad section with hurdles and a downhill offcamber corner and a muddy, rooty technical section.
Race Report: Raleigh SCX6 - Cross at the Castle & Santa CX World Championships
Many of us wondered as we queued up at the ferry terminal in Oban on the Friday whether we would get to Mull …. and whether last year’s brutal conditions were to be repeated. We needn’t have worried - Davie Graham is a wonderful organiser and making sure the Sound of Mull calmed down for a wee while to let us cross was no bother to him. Moreover, he arranged for a fantastic weekend of weather to mark the tenth running of this race.
